Scott posted out in another thread here now... he said that Dish had planned on leaving the 5 Voom channels up, Voom told them it was all or nothing. Dish obliged, and went to none. Voom has some of the blame as well.

Nobody is denying that...I think the point is to jab at Dish's excuse about "needing to add more popular programming." WFN and Tennis do not fall into that category, sorry. Do you actually believe people were calling Dish complaining about not carrying WFN??? :haha

Actually... believe it or not... there were. Do search and you will see it.

Myself I would rather have Outdoor Channel 2 HD instead of WFN. Most of the shows so far look like they were taped or are airing from VHS video cassettes.

I honestly thing most of the people that were asking for this channel were doing so in jest. But maybe I'm wrong.

The quality is the main problem here. This is so far from a "HD channel" that it is pathetic. Your comment about the VHS cassetts is sadly very true. If everything was in HD parts of this channel could be OK as some of the locals could be neat.
